The two teams are here on the mat and we have game time in a short while from now!

Starting 7s-

Telugu Titans:
Abozar Mighani (c), Siddharth Desai, Farhad Milaghardan, Vishal Bhardwaj, C Arun, Armaan, Amit Kumar.

Bengaluru Bulls: Rohit Kumar (c), Pawan Sehrawat, Mohit Sehrawat, Mahender Singh, Vijay Kumar, Saurabh Nandal, Amit Sheoran.
In terms of head to head records, the Bengaluru Bulls lead the way with 9 wins from 15 games while the Telugu Titans have just 3 wins, with the remaining games finishing on a tie.
Pawan Sehrawat's top-flight raiding was in focus in the Bulls' last encounter as the ace raider picked up 29 raid points to single-handedly bring about the Bulls' come-from-behind victory. However, Desai's story is quite the contrast, with the lanky raider picking up just 28 raid points from five matches.

On the defensive front, Mahender Singh and Saurabh Nandal have struck a positive partnership for the Bulls, while Abozar Mighani and Vishal Bhardwaj need to pull up their socks for the Titans.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 31 between the Telugu Titans and Bengaluru Bulls!

The Titans have failed to register a single win this season and will desperately need Siddharth Desai to justify his massive price tag. The Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, will be coming into this game on the back of a thrilling 43-42 win against the Bengal Warriors and could be expected to give the Titans a run for their money.
